Why We Love It

Carnivorous Pitcher Plants are one of the marvels of the plant world.

Insect-eating Sarracenias catch flies and insects using their long pitcher tubes which absorb the prey.

Green pitchers, often flushed with red and sporting a large lip at the opening, are truly fascinating while plants may even bear purple flowers in spring.

How to Plant

Into a Pot

  1. Plant into specialist compost for carnivorous plants, which will have an acidic formulation.
  2. Plants will be happiest when the surface of the compost is topped with a layer of moss.
  3. Water with rainwater and avoid using tap water.
  4. For best results, water from beneath the pot and keep the compost moist.
